“If you have 500 things half done you’re not staying busy, you’re wasting your life. You don’t have the time to be distracted. Focus, take action… and you will overcome any block.” – Me
Do you have an idea and are stuck figuring out how to create it?
Do you feel like you’re spinning your wheels, confused about where to start and might be starting to believe that you just gotta settle and just be happy with what you have?
Here’s the thing, it takes hunger to bring your dreams to life my friend.
You have a desire of what you want… and have a fire inside you that won’t be extinguished.
When you are alive with passion and purpose… your energy lights up everyone and everything.
The world needs your light.
I see people struggling to figure out HOW to build their dream business all the time.
If you’re struggling with the “how-to” of all this… let me share with you 5 steps that will help you take those invisible daydreams and turn them into your actual reality.
Step 1: Write Down Open Loops.
Open Loops are everything you want to get one either: now, later or someday. Everything that’s on your mind. Your mind is not a filing cabinet, it’s a creative machine. Get all the “to-do’s” off youd mind and into one place.
Writing down your Open Loops reduces overwhelm and gives you a place to being.
For example, if you want to leave your soul-sucking job and start your own business, you may identify an open loop as needing to write a plan of action, research your target market and connect with your ideal client to get feedback on the services you want to create.
Action: write down all your open loops in one place that you can reference weekly, I recommend the WunderList app.
Step 2: Desired Outcome
Be specific about what you want to achieve and “by when”.
State it in the positive and present tense. Write down the outcome that you want, not what you don’t want. Too many people spend all their life talking about what they don’t want and they wonder why they don’t have it.
Action: write down the outcome that you want to achieve and by when, such as your business making $50,000/year by Dec 1, 2017. Don’t get caught up in whether you can do it by the date or not, just set the goal.
Step 3: Your Vision
Imagine the day that your dream comes to reality. What does it feel like? What does it look like? Who are you with? Step into the feelings of it. See it crystal clear and create a compellng vision for the future that you are creating for yourself. Not someone else’s future… YOURS.
Action: write at least one page of what it would be like waking up Dec 1, 2017 and you’ve done it! Be as specific as you can be.
Step 4: Courageous Imperfect Action
How do you eat an elephant? That’s an age-old question with the same answer… one bite at a time… And if you are vegan…. how do you eat a Redwood Tree? Well… maybe not the same thing, but you get my drift…
Look at your open loops – put them in priority and grill down to the next specific action step that you need to take to get it done. Be specific. Make it grounded. Make it actionable.
Action: Identify your top/most important open loop then all the specific action needed to make it happen. Such as finally publishing your website, going on a retreat to get your business up and running in seven days or setting a boundary with a toxic relationship.

Step 5: Focus
As I just mentioned… learn to say no and set boundaries. Say NO. You hear me. NO is ok. Say it about 100% more than you do right now. Saying NO can be HUGE for your dreams to come true. Do it. Now 🙂
Action: Where are you distracted or spending time that does not serve you or your purpose? Start saying no to these energy drains – now.
You must create the space you need in your life to bring your dreams forward.
Trust me. And let’s get into action.
Follow these steps and you will leave behind any overwhelm, struggle, stress or any of that and move forward successfullt to make your impossible dream…. well, possible. And not just possible, a reality.
Let me know, what is your impossible dream? And what is the first action you are going to take to get there?
Big things happen when you take small steps. Let’s take that step together today… right… now.
Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!
